Weather aside, winter is such a lonely season. No yard sales, very few estate sales, just the thrift stores to keep one occupied. But after christmas the shelves at the thrift store were nearly bare. But spring is in the air, and today there was an estate sale!
When I got there to acquire my number, the usual suspects were already loitering outside and had no doubt snapped up the first 20 numbers or so. I had to knock on the door ??? and ask for a number. It was 30. Oh well. Then come to find out the powers in charge (not the usual suspects) are only going to let 10 people in at a time. Well that just means that the first 10 in (the dealers who no doubt have been there since dawn) will get the run of the place and have the pick and the rest of us will be let in once they are done to peruse the leftovers.
Always the conundrum, is it worth waiting for? Well, I’ve already invested about 30 minutes so I’m in. In for a penny, in for a pound.
I should have left with my penny, once I got in there was nothing decent to be had (not sure there was anything to begin with). I bought a seashell, big whup.
Oh heck, I’ll check out the thrift stores. Maybe I’ll find something.
It turned out to be a decent thrifty friday, I’ll share.
The latest idea circling around my brain is deconstructing/reconstructing thrifted clothing. This 100% linen chemise with an empire waist is perfect.
Oh my goodness, I love this one! Right out of 1976 or there abouts. I can’t wait to do something fun with this one.
I about peed my pants when I found this and looked inside to the label. Betsy Johnson!
Another great find! This chenille spread is a beautiful silver green. SO perfect for me to turn it into a dust ruffle for my bed. Remember when this happened!
Isn’t this fabulous! I can’t wait to hang it in the garden and watch it start to rust.
Last but not least do you know what this is? I was so excited to find it. It’s a tingler. And if you don’t know what this is for, then you need to get one and find out!
